Good Morning All, Good day yesterday and feeling pretty normal this morning; still on meds and will finish those. GGS is coming this morning; I'm really having fun with him. Good day yesterday; first back to normal fitness day. Really cold this morning but will warm to the high 30's this afternoon. Will get out and walk then and at least do a yard pick up as I haven't been out there for awhile. Life is good. Enjoy your day!

Morning Guys
You sound a chipper bunch, feeling better and being active.
Gale force winds here today and snow expected- though not on the scale the USA is experiencing. A couple of inches at most!

But that wind................no walk today- I'd get blown into the sea emoticon
Just ST and helping Pete with the loft............yep still working on that. It's been too cold to work up there til yesterday...and evening then it was with coats on emoticon

Happy Hump Day all, stay safe and warm.

CAZ, you crack me up! I love milling around antique and thrift shops.
I plan on getting out and about early this morning rather than leaving it to after, or just before lunch. So, out I go.
Have a great day.
Those of you in the path of storms; stay safe.

Feeling proud that I got up early and did a s/t video before work. My goal for the week is at least 10,000 steps a day and at least 2 s/t workouts for the week. I've gotten away from the definite goals, and the "vague" ones haven't been doing the trick. I need to go back to the basics with the goal/reward system, and then maybe I'll see some progress on the scale.

Good Morning All; Light snow out there this morning. Had a better day yesterday, actually felt like doing some extra things around the house. I'm unscheduled today so plan to catch up and clean up in my office. It still hasn't recovered from the projects and activities, not to mention the neglect, of the holidays.
The cold and threat of ice on the sidewalks kept me in yesterday. I do snow better than ice. May have to do my workouts inside today too. Stay well everyone!

Morning all
Joy and Jeri glad you've both turned the corner. Keep well.
Lynette sounds like you're tackling your "to do" list, bet you slept well last night LOL
Cat some days are less active than others, at least you got a walk in.

I got my walk in after all yesterday then went into Gorleston looking for knicknacks but came away empty handed........just means more retail therapy emoticon it's a hard life ....but someone has to do it emoticon

Walk this morning, light ST and catching up on chores.

just read thru all the posts since I checked in last. Lots of illness and fatigue in our group and support is one of the strongest benefits of Sparkpeople so I am sending positive vibes to all, better later than never.
My guy's business, helping students prepare for their government exams in January and June, keeps me very busy in those months so today I am breathing a sigh of relief and tackling all of the things that have been on the back burner. My kids came thru on their way skiing and brought the gifts, buys and dirty laundry I'd left with them when I caught a ride home after Xmas. It looks like a bomb went off in my house. Well, honestly that is not too unusual... but it needs to be tended to, so I'll get off the computer and get busy!
Hope everyone has a good day, prioritizing themselves, their health and their happiness.

We have a "makeshift" pickleball court. We just taped off the boundary lines on the gym floor in a different color than the basketball markings, so that works okay. We did the same thing on an old tennis court that no one has used in years (but painted the lines). It's growing in this area, too. The folks play it when they go south for the winter, then come back and teach it to the rest of us! For me, it's a fun way to exercise.

Good morning. Yesterday my stress level caught up to me, and I ended up with an arthritis flare that knocked me flat on my butt. So I stayed in bed most of the day. Today I woke up feeling refreshed, and I went to the Y and ran 6 miles around the indoor track. It was a good run. It's very icy outside. While I was in the gym, a whole new layer of ice formed on my car. One of my friends told me that cars were sliding off the road all over the place. Hopefully, the weather will improve as the day goes on!I My stepmother spent a few hours with my dad yesterday, so I was glad to be able to take a day off from that, just to rest. I'll go visit him this evening.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Good Morning All, Each day a little better. Looking forward to getting off all these meds. But seem to still need them. Was able to walk Sugar and exercise yesterday. GGS is coming this morning. :)

All is well. Have a great week everyone!

Good morning! I hope everyone will enjoy their week and stay motivated. I have to say getting a Fitbit in Oct has been a great motivator for me. I am so competitive with myself. If you don't have one, I highly recommend it.

Big article in our paper today about how retirees are looking at pickle ball facilities before making their choice on retirement homes. A bunch of folks here are begging for the towns to build the courts in every park.
Shopping and a walk today is all I have done.
Have a good evening.
Joy, hang in .

I feel like being lazy today, but think I'll try to talk myself into going to pickleball at 1:00. I can get in an hour or so of playing, and still get home in time to relax for the rest of the afternoon.

Good Morning All, Takes awhile to know how I'm going to feel today; recovery seems stalled. Most congested in the morning, main bother is no stamina. Fitness activity is at an all time low. I'm doing fine with diet but can gain at my usual level if I'm not exercising. I will deal with that later, I'm making healthy choices and staying on my normal eating plan. Looks like a rainy day, even getting some inside walks in would be an improvement. I know this will pass; it's been a long time since I've had to deal with illness. Make it a great day!

Hi Everybody!
I was glad I took time to catch up on everyone's posts.
Joy, So glad you are starting to feel better. It sounds like you were really miserable for a bit.

Jeri, I am praying for you and your dad daily. Hospice definitely would ease a lot of his suffering and your feelings of not being able to do enough for him. Remember, you are doing the best you can in a very difficult situation. I am glad you were able to take time out to got do a workout in this week and do something for yourself and that
you are able to see the bright spots in life in spite of everything you are going thru right now.
You are an amazing woman and you will get thru this, even if you can't see very far down the road. The others have given great advice.

Cat, I am praying for you to be guided to the right decision on what treatment option is best.
Thank you for cheering others on as you are dealing with all that you are facing.

Patti, Hope you are hanging in there and remembering Spring is trying to get here ASAP.

God has been very good to me as I have faced different life challenges of the last few years. In addition, DH and I have managed not to catch anything going around this winter. I attribute that to being retired and not working with the public and not being around
children, who spread germs with great abandon...LOL

I was supposed to visit my sister tomorrow, but a storm is brewing, so that will not happen til spring. We are keeping warm and counting our blessings.

Thanks everyone for sharing. We are a really good support system for each other.

Good morning (not really morning, it's just after noon). I've been at the small local YMCA this morning. I ran 3 miles, did some jumprope, some squats, some core, etc. I'm going to make a delicious frothy coffee drink and take it out to my dad after I get cleaned up from being all sweaty. We lost power this morning for about 3 hours due to the snow.

NFC, I'm thinking of you daily. It is a tough decision, for sure.

Thank you all so much for the daily encouragement. I do read daily, and I appreciate your kind words.

NFC, you have a difficult decision, and will be thinking of you over the weekend! Jeri, again, with your father - one thing I learned when my mom was in hospice is that you do what you can, but also you need to take care of yourself and your family and not feel guilty afterwards - just do what is right at the time and not look back! I had a good week, have a busy day ahead, and need to keep moving here! Have a good day, teammates!

Good Morning All, Slept 9 hours last night! Take that for a good sign I've definitely turned the corner. Woke to an incredibly beautiful winter wonderland with the sun bouncing off our first measurable snow of the winter. It won't last long as warm temps are coming. I will get out this afternoon and do some clearing; but only what I feel comfortable doing. I'm so tired of being inside! GGS did come yesterday morning. He's so much fun! Trying so hard to walk and is moving around along the bed and from one toy to another--Has a play table and a giraffe that will support him standing. He's starting to mug and knows it's funny! Amazing changes week to week. Life is good.

CAT, Yes, prayers for guidance and that you will wake Monday KNOWING the best way to proceed; I too understand your reluctance and I don't think anyone knows what they will do until they are personally faced with the decision. I am glad you gave yourself the weekend to process everything.

Jeri, There just aren't words; stay strong. It's a difficult time of life for you all.

Good health to everyone, let's just do our best; one day at a time.

Morning all
Joy take it easy hun, hope the walk helped.
Jeri I am so sorry for what your dad's going through. I heard a phrase some time back " we have to lay our burdens down". Give yourself a break if you can and do something for YOU- it'll keep you strong for yourself and your dad. Great that the jacket arrived- see yourself doing the triathlon. I hope you can get him comfortable and with the care he desperately needs soon. emoticon
MN certainly we need to count our blessings.
Cat you have to do what's right for you hun. You have the weekend. Chemo is not the nausea inducing treatment it used to be but I understand totally your reluctance. emoticon

It's warming up 2.4 today and the sun is coming out. I'm off out. Have a great weekend, love to you all emoticon

Hi all.
I feel so bad for you and your father, Jeri.
Joy, hang in gal.
Thanks for the good thoughts CAZ.
Met with oncologist today with all test results. She says chemo is in order but I just can't bring myself to do it. Four infusions over four months. I believe I will opt only for the radiation and estrogen blocker therapy. Prayers and thoughts to guide me before calling Monday with my decision.
Have a great evening and weekend everyone.

Well, I take that back. He can't get hospice yet because he is in skilled care in the nursing home. He has to keep the skilled care in order to stay there, and hospice won't pick him up while he's in skilled care. But they can't keep him at home, so he has to stay there, but he doesn't have a medicare supplement that will pay the cost of room and board at $4,000/month. She is trying to figure out different financing. She is a licensed insurance agent. She should be able to get him a supplement now at a cheaper rate than $4,000/month, and that would take care of it. Sometimes I want to pop my stepmother in the nose.

Yes, he is eligible for hospice care. But getting hospice care has been like pulling teeth. He has a non-existent doctor at the nursing home (his prior care was through the VA, so they assigned him a doctor). The nurse practitioner does all his work, and from what I've known of her, I dislike her. She is the one who only prescribes him tramadol. Anyway, my stepmother and my daughter are having a meeting with the nurse practitioner this morning, and they should be requesting a referral to hospice -- and stronger pain meds. OMG, this has been super frustrating on so many levels. I could tell you some more stories that just compound the problem, but no. I'll keep that to myself.

Yes JERI holding on to the "good" in your days certainly helps. I'm sorry your dad is having such a time. With the timeline they presented he, and the family, should be eligible for Hospice services. I've seen them in action with several friends over the years and they were wonderful. They did a better job of pain management and comfort than is possible without them. Your dad's doctor should be able to connect you. Hugs.

Good morning. Kinda chilly here today. I spent the evening with my dad last night, as he was transferred to the hospital for esophageal problems. They didn't keep him there, but they did give him different medicine. It's the first time anyone has ever given us a time reference while talking about end of life care. We were told 3-4 months. It made for a restless night last night. So this morning when I got up to go to work, I put on the jacket I received from the USA Triathlon National Championships last summer. It somehow made me feel really good, and I remembered that awesome stuff is still happening in my life. Every single day awesome stuff happens. I have been so consumed with my dad's health situation, that it has been difficult to see that. So today I am very thankful for this jacket.

Good Morning All. Up early, GGS is coming today. Still on the mend but not contagious and feeling good enough to enjoy him. It's going to take awhile to get my body back in balance. Have to finish the Rx and ease off the decongestants. They have my gut out of wack. Not much aerobic activity for 5 days now, no energy. It's all taking a toll. Hope to at least walk some today. Enjoy the weekend everyone!

Hi Girls
It's the weekend emoticon not that it makes that much of a difference to us hahaha.
Joy glad you're all getting better. There is a flu-like bug going around over here laying people up for a week or more............so far I've avoided it!
Jeri so sorry you have so much to contend with, but at least your runs are helping you get through this. Take care not to overdo it Jeri , if you're not sleeping well at least get some rest.
emoticon Patti, have a good weekend hun.
MN sounds like you're really getting back into exercise- doing great! Getting stronger.
Anne glad your niece is doing so well. yep! got my walk in but the wind was icy and side on- so one cheek got frozen going and the other one coming back LOL.
Cat best wishes for your appt. Let us know how you got on.

Quiet day and debating whether to go walkies....it's 1.3 degrees out there!!!

Hi gals.
Joy, I have the same fragrance sensitivities as you and Dove unscented is the only soap allowed in our house besides Ivory. I do use liquid Dr Bronner's peppermint.
Strange day here waiting for my appt tomorrow. Just pins and needles.

Yes Anne, my brother and his wife left late morning; it will take about 8 hours until they get home. They had something different than I. I have a sinus infection that really got out of control. I don't remember ever being so sick with one. My brother had more like a 24 hour flu; SIL it's hard to tell as she never seems to feel well. She was in the best shape of the 3.

I'm chemically sensitive and when exposed to an irritant my head (sinuses) block up; if I get on the allergy meds or away from the irritant it goes away but prolonged exposure my sinuses don't drain and become infected. I know, TMI. When GGS came two weeks ago he was just getting over a cold. Plus just the normal handling of an infant I was washing my hands more, then with the bugger nose I bought some "white" DIAL, hoping it would be fragrance free even though it was also disinfectant. It did not claim to be but didn't seem to have much of a scent. I put it in both bathrooms and the kitchen. Not knowing that I was reacting to it--I can't always tell at first. Because I was getting sick I was washing my hands even more--especiall on GGS days!
When I first woke this morning I felt great! Went to the bathroom and in a short time was having symptoms again; I blamed it on fluids shifting, meds wearing off etc. When I went up to the kitchen to fix my brother breakfast I washed my hands and had a severe coughing attack. Started connecting the dots of the whole past week and trying to not pass germs around between all of us I was actually making mysef worse! The Dial is now out of the house!! I'm not even willing to try it again as a test. This has been awful. I can use unscented Dove, that will have to do. Can't tell you the things that trigger this. Mostly other people as I avoid everything here--brought in something I thought was safe because of watching the baby. My family has been really great about avoiding fragrances when visiting or if we're going out together. Except for my brother his Old Spice is an irritant for me--he won't accept it but he sure did this week. Usually I take allergy meds when he comes. Lesson learned. Thanks for listening. Better days ahead!

Had a good sleep last night and much more active day, A 10min yoga video before work and a 30min walk in my lunch break. Chilly but dry and bright. No work now for 3 days.
My niece has been posting pictures of meals she is making on instagram, she is picking up reduced products and making a variety of meals they look good and pleased she enjoys cooking from scratch. Pity she lives 700miles away from me so I will have to copy her recipies to taste them.
Joy did your visitors leave yet ? glad you are a bit better
Jeri that is a rough night you had, I would have never managed a run, Sorry your dad appears uncomfortable must be so difficult for you visit him. They should see if they can get a pain assessment done although might be some emotional distress to.
MN we are aiming to retire around the same time.. Need to make some future plans.
Caz hope you had a seaside walk to-day you are in such lovely surrounding now

Anne, so agree that retirement is looking better each day! My mind is ready, my body is ready, but my bank account is not ready....... emoticon Three more years until we can get Medicare and not have to worry about paying for medical insurance, so that is our goal. Had a morning workout and tonight will go back to pickleball for my cardio.

Good morning! I went to see my dad last night. The night before last he had a very painful night. Last night he was uncomfortable, but not in pain. It was a much better evening. I went to bed early, fell asleep quickly, but couldn't stay asleep. I was awake at 11:30, 12:15, 2:30, 3:45, 4:30, and finally I got out of bed at 4:55. I ran 3 miles on the indoor track. It put me in a much better mood than I've been in the last few days, so I'm glad for that.

Have a super duper day, youall. :-)

Good Morning All, I did get a good nights sleep last night. We have all been sick. Plan has been for brother and wife to head back to MI today but that will depend a lot on how he slept. We are on the mend. Have a way to go. Stay well everyone.

So glad you are on the mend Joy. Slow and steady till you recover.
I was so warm and snuggly in bed this morning and so cold outside ran down stair made breakfast and ate it in bed. I never do that especially on a work day. Makes a change from not sleeping well and been down stair on the sofa at 4am. Still managed up and of to work by 7.15. Some days retirement looks very appealing (just over 3 years till I am 60). So to-day has been a no exercise day and a recharge,

Thanks guys! On the mend; but still uncomfortable. Has me up early for a hot drink to clear my head-literally. Back to bed for a few. If i can't sleep will get back up. Busy day ahead if I'm up for it. Right now I think I'll be passing on lunch out. Later.

Oh, Joy, you do sound miserable! As active as you always are, you have to be feeling pretty bad to take time out for a nap. Hope the meds help get you on your way to healing soon! And Jeri, too - you've had it long enough. So much stuff going around, it's hard to avoid it. It's warmer today, even though it's snowing/sleeting and overcast. I did walk to work anyway. Have a meeting/program to attend tonight, so won't have time for exercise after work. I did get up early this morning, though, and got in some s/t. I'm off post-surgery restrictions now, so I have no excuse not to get back to full speed!

Hi, 2.5 hours at the doctor but really thankful that they fit me in. Antibiotics now for sinus infection, more decongestants, expectorants, cough suppressents. Chest Xray to rule out pneumonia--will take a day or two for results. Cough is terrible when it starts; it hurts. JERI, you know what I mean, I know! Terrible night last night. Hoping for a nap in my recliner this afternoon and that the meds do their job. Will get back on a fitness routine when better; diet is no problem; nothing tastes good. Making healthy choices. Have had the flu and pneumonia shot; go figure. Sure feels like pneumonia, my whole core hurts but that could be the coughing. Better days ahead. Brother and his wife just headed out for lunch and to do some fun shopping; to give me nap time I'm sure and I do appreciate it. Stay well everyone!

NFC, normally clip my Fitbit to my bra but I hadn't put my bra on yet, so just clipped it on my panties and I won't do that again! My old Fitbit Ultra has been resurrected and is working okay for now, but it is cracked so not sure how much more life it has in it. But for now, I can count my steps again!! Nice day today, so was able to walk to work after lunch (was still too icy in the morning, but then warmed up).

Greetings gals.
A beautiful weather day here. Everyone in the stores today were feeling high from the game result yesterday.
Going for my surgery follow up tomorrow. All seems to be going well from my perspective now I get to hear what the doc thinks.

Good morning. I started the day with a core/leg workout (some arms, but not much). Now I'm at work to start my humdrum week.

Good Morning All, Supposed to be another nice day in the 40's and I hope to at least get out for a walk. Not quite making it on my fitness minutes but not eating as much either. Just yucky. Rough night, doubled up the decongestant this morning. Can't take it at night, it won't let me sleep at all. Been here before and it will pass. It hasn't even been a week; but sure feels like it. Company will be returning tomorrow evening, not sure how long they plan to visit; most likely 2-3 days. Thank you all for your good wishes.

emoticon JJJ! It's always good to re-assess and set new goals.

Donna have a great extra day off....what plans do you have?
Joy I hope you feel better soon hun- I know that, like me, feeling under par irks you.
Anne TV is rubbish right now....we're still viewing recorded films from Crimbo LOL Sounds like you had a lot of fun!
MN we soon get to rely on these little gadgets don't we? I hate when I drop my pedometer and it resets itself back to zero steps- I lose track of what I've done for the day....very demoralising LOL
Cat hope you have a good week hun.
Jeri is it any wonder you broke down emoticon I feel for you and your dad. Take care of yourself and rest up when you can......we all have to lay down our burdens for a while.
Javajunkiejac nice to see you posting.
Marilyn sounds like you're having a good time.


Well, I'm debating my usual stroll this morning! It is only 0.4 degrees out there and a strong wind.............oh what the heck emoticon I'll just layer up BIG TIME emoticon

Hi Everybody!
Jeri, So sorry to hear of all your troubles. I really feel for you. No easy answers. At least we are here when you need to vent.
Joy, Hope you feel better soon.
Caz, I loved seeing the info. historic. It looks like a charming community asset.

I am still basking in the glow of Ohio State winning the national championship. emoticon
I will be visiting Columbus next weekend, but probably won't be on campus.
It has been a busy weekend. We visited friends out of town and watched the football playoffs.
Also had time for working out. Also, I am sponsoring someone new in AA. It is a very rewarding way to spend time and will help me learn some important life lessons. But it will keep me busy.

We also are making plans for a trip to Florida in March. I am really looking forward to getting away for a bit. We are going to Sarasota to visit friends and attend a local jazz festival.

Be well.
Marilyn

I'm starting over. Changes at work and personal challenges has knocked me flat on my bootie. I'm getting up and starting over with a new goal.

Jeri, I am so sorry for you hard times. Your story is almost identical to my hairdressers. Please take care.
Joy, being out and about probably will help you if what you have is sinus. Keep plugging along. (Like you need to be told!)
Everyone out there is cheeseland - well, I don't know what to say............except good luck. May the team that plays the best today win!
